Sheriff Ahern would like to acknowledge the following agencies whose dedicated staff members put in numerous hours of hard work to host a training scenario or an area command.  Their participation along with the hundreds of individuals from both public and private entities, as well as the many volunteers, has made it possible to successfully plan and execute this year’s Urban Shield Exercise.  It is with sincere appreciation and gratitude that we recognize their contribution.
